Center Al Conroy spent four seasons with the Medicine Hat Tigers and represented his country in the World Junior Championships in 1985 before spending his first professional season in Switzerland. Conroy, who was born in Calgary, Alberta on January 17th, 1966, also played in Italy and Germany before signing a free agent contract with the Detroit Red Wings in 1989.
Conroy never cracked Detroit's NHL roster instead spending his time in the American Hockey League with the Adirondack Red Wings. When his contract expired Conroy inked a deal with the Philadelphia Flyers, and this was his ticket to the NHL.
Conroy appeared in 31 games for Philadelphia in 1991-92 scoring 2 goals and 11 points. The following year he spent just 21 games with the Flyers, but had a break through the season after, playing 62 games and spending no time in the minors for the only time in his career. In his 62 games Conroy scored 4 goals and 7 points. When his contract expired that summer, the Flyers did not renew his deal and Conroy became a free agent and jumped to the International Hockey League.
After three seasons in the IHL, Conroy added another stop to his globetrotting pro career signing on to play in Japan for the 1997-98. After three seasons with Cranes of the Japanese league Conroy retired in 2000.
